    Ohio Attorney General’s Office


    The Ohio Attorney General shall use amounts in the Drug Abuse Resistance Education Programs Fund to award grants to law enforcement agencies to establish and implement drug abuse resistance education programs in public schools.

    Programs eligible for funding include:

    • D.A.R.E. Programs: D.A.R.E. certified peace officers presenting elementary and middle school D.A.R.E. l programs.
    • School Resource Officer Drug Use Prevention Programs: Drug Use Prevention Education programs presented by School Resource Officers.

    All programs funded during the 2020-21 grant cycle must provide OTC/RX drug abuse prevention education. Planned activities must be specifically included in the agency's grant proposal, and a summary of the efforts must be included in the final report.

    The Ohio Attorney General's Drug Use Prevention Grant covers up to 50 percent of the salary for D.A.R.E. and School Resource Officers conducting drug use prevention education in public schools. The drug use prevention education must be approved by the Ohio Attorney General's Office.

    Typical allowable costs are classroom time, class prep time (up to two hours of prep time for every one hour of classroom time); group counseling or one-on-one counseling (up to one hour for every one hour of class time); and unique events, such as camps, a D.A.R.E. booth at county fair (up to one hour for every one hour of class time). Other non-typical costs may be allowed at the discretion of the Ohio Attorney General's Office.

    Additional Information

    For the 2020-21 grant cycle, all claimable hours will stem from the time spent in the classroom. For every one hour of classroom time, officers can claim up to two hours of classroom preparation time, one hour of counseling and one hour of unique events.

    The peace officer's base hourly wage DOES NOT include fringe benefits such as insurance, retirement, unemployment taxes or a vehicle. Other costs associated with the funded program — including supplies, travel, training, food and beverages, prizes and awards, telephone and internet costs, and other overhead costs — are not eligible for funding under this grant.
